Keelung Harbor is located at the northern tip of Taiwan Island, between Fugui Cape and Cape Bitou. The harbor is embraced by mountains to its east, west, and south with a narrow waterway approximately 2,000 meters in length and 400 meters in width that extend from the inner harbor in the southwest to the harbor mouth in the northwest. Featuring both military and commercial applications, Keelung Harbor serves as an excellent harbor in Northern Taiwan.
Zhongzheng (Jhongjheng) Park is situated on the side of Dashawan Mountain, which is at the east of Keelung City. There is a white statue of Goddess of Mercy in the park. This 25-meter high statue has become one of the characteristics of Keelung. The park overlooks Keelung City and the harbor. There are three levels in the park. On the first level is a historic canon fort. On the second level is a Buddhist library, Martyrs' Shrine and Zhuputan Temple. The temple attracts many worshipers on July 15. On the third level is Guanhai Pavilion. Sitting in the pavilion, visitors can see the entire Keelung and the ocean.
Yeliu (Yeliou) is a cape of about 1,700 meters long formed by Datun Mountain reaching into the sea. When overlooked from above, the place is like a giant turtle
submerging into the sea. Thus, it is also called "Yeliu (Yeliou) Turtle". Because the rock layer of seashore contains sandstone of limestone texture and it is subject to sea erosion, weathering and earth movements, there is particular scenery consisting of sea trenches/holes, candle shaped rocks, and pot shaped rocks.
